Verra is pleased to welcome Robin Rix as our new Chief Policy and Markets Officer.

He subsequently worked at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Bonn, where he serviced the intergovernmental negotiations on the future role of markets in mitigating climate change and supporting sustainable development and managed various strategic projects.

- Viridiana Alcantara-Shivapatham, Senior Program Officer, Agriculture Innovations
